"Not your grandmother's Tupperware Party" (NBC Today Show)
Dixie's Tupperware Party, the hilarious show starring Dixie Longate which turned Off-Broadway into a Tupperware-mania celebration and garnered the prestigious 2008 Drama Desk Award Nomination rolls into the Raymond F. Kravis Center for the Performing Arts for a strictly limited engagement of seven performances beginning January 28 – February 1. Written by Kris Andersson, the production is playing West Palm Beach as part of a 20-city national tour.
Dixie's Tupperware Party stars Dixie Longate as the fast-talking Tupperware Lady, who has packed up her catalogues and left her children in an Alabama trailer park to journey across America. Critics and audiences have howled with laughter as Dixie throws a good ol' fashioned Tupperware Party filled with outrageously funny tales, heartfelt accounts, FREE giveaways, audience participation and the most fabulous assortment of Tupperware ever sold on a theater stage! Loaded with the most up-to-date products available for purchase, Ms. Longate will share how she became the number one Tupperware seller in the world, as she educates her guests on the many alternative uses she has discovered for her plastic products.
Produced by Down South LLC and directed by Patrick Richwood, Dixie's Tupperware Party will feature costumes designed by Miss Longate and lighting designed by Richard Winkler.
